Ambien is very effective however there are side effects like waking up and eating in the middle of the night and not remembering doing so. Otherwise, it's great and you don't feel sleepy the next day.

I have taken this medicine every night for 5 years--do no take this Rx--you WILL become addicted. I cannot sleep at all if I don't takeit--and sleep maybe 4 hours if I do. Causes TERRIBLE memory loss, daytime sleepiness,I wish I had never started--Doctor told me it was perfectly fine to take long term--WRONG !! STAY AWAY FROM THIS MEDICINE!!!!!!!

Ambien works great for me, you should take it on an empty stomach, go right to bed, and you'll ease off to sleep, the only thing is, it only lasts about 4-5 hrs for me, but really do not have a problem going back to sleep on my own.

Comment:
I havent experienced any hallucinations that other people have had, but dreams while on Ambien are really quite lucid, and extraordinary. No loss of memory, but slight groggyness in the morning only lasting 10 to 30 minutes.
